“You Can’t Handle the Truth!” – the memorable line from A Few Good Men, the Broadway smash-hit and blockbuster film, which comes to The Hawth Crawley soon.
This classic courtroom drama about the trial of two Marines for complicity in the death of a fellow Marine sizzles on stage. A young, inexperienced Navy lawyer, Daniel Kaffee, more interested in softball games, is chosen to represent them. It seems an open-and-shut-case: a plea bargain and a week of paperwork. But the men say they were following orders.
Soon Kaffee, pressured by the driven Lt. Commander Joanne Galloway and the memory of his late attorney father, finds himself putting the whole Marine Corps on trial in his search for the truth.
